The King’s Society
The King’s Society is a cultural, social, and educational society for parents and friends of The King’s School. Our aim is to enable members to enjoy social events together and appreciate the opportunities that the School, the Cathedral and the Precincts have to offer.
We arrange a variety of events to cater for all interests. Recent activities have included guided tours of Canterbury Cathedral and the St. Augustine’s Abbey ruins, theatre trips to both The Marlowe in Canterbury and The West End, visits to art galleries, guided walking tours in London and summer visits to gardens such as Highgrove and Sissinghurst.
We hold regular lectures from distinguished speakers, craft and culinary workshops, fine dining evenings and wine tasting.
Weekends further afield have included visits to Seville, Florence, Paris and Berlin, while the guided tour of the First World War battlefields around Ypres is always a popular attraction.
The Society currently has over 300 members. We are a non-profit making organisation which exists solely for the benefit of its members. A new branch of The King’s Society has recently formed in Hong Kong.
A number of King’s Society events are available to book via The King’s School Box Office
